There are die-hard sports fans, and then there are those who take things too far. One family spotted at an MLB game might be toeing that line.

The Purdy family loves the New York Yankees, so much that they traveled all the way from Kansas to Target Field in Minneapolis to see their beloved Bronx Bombers take on the Minnesota Twins on Thursday night.

But that’s not even the half of it.

These parents love the Yankees so much that they named their three children Jeter, Maris and Yogi after the New York greats.


The father of this family, Casey, also has brothers named Roger, Andy and Mickey. At least they got more ordinary first names.
